What's a typical day for an Auto Tech?

I'm enrolled at Fred G. Acosta Job Corps and I am interested in becoming an Auto Technician. #technology #tech #engineering

Thank you comment icon Hi. I myself am not an auto tech but we hapen to have a great mechanic who services all our cars. He recently told us that it is becoming hard to find a good mechanic to work in his shop. He said it is a good idea to go to your local garages or any car dealer that services cars and request to be able to "intern" or "shadow" the mechanics for a day. This will give you an idea of what an average day is like for an auto tech. From there you can determine if you would like to specialize in a specific "brand" or if you would like to be more generic. A lot of the higher end cars prefer you to "specialize" as some of the cars are harder to maintain than others. Good luck with your endeavours and continue to pursure your passion! You can take "auto" skills with you everywhere worldwide. Jacquelyn Poticny

It all depends on what area are you assigned in an auto shop. If you deal with tires, then your day will be changing tires, balancing and alignment, tire rotation, fixing flats, etc If you are an AC tech, then you deal just with anything pertaining the AC and components.
A General mechanic will deal will all the precious lines I wrote plus oil change, replacing parts, and anything else that may be the issue the car is in the shop for.
